Windows 7: Windows Password click on Enter Required

14 May 2013   #1

Windows Password click on Enter Required


When I travel; I set my home computer to require a complex Windows Password. But when I'm home, I'd like it to start up and not ask for a password.

I've done something wrong and now when I start up the computer, it requires me to click on the Enter key before it will finish loading Windows7. How can I change the setting so that it will always finish loading Windows without any intervention?

A big thanks,

/ Gary E.
